Crosshairs will soon be illegal in Montana.

HELENA, Montana - The state of Montana has just become the first state in the union to go up against the powerful National Rifle Association and issue a rifle related ban.

Willie McSpinach, a spokesperson for the state, told the news media that Montana has always prided itself in being one of the most fair hunting states in the entire nation.

It was brought out that the state believes that hunters should make the hunting experience exciting and challenging.

The state feels that there is just nothing at all exciting nor challenging about sighting up a deer or an elk with a high-powered telescopic rifle with crosshairs and then blasting the heck out of it.

Mr. McSpinach, who is himself an award-winning hunter, noted that many of his hunting friends who hate crosshairs say that those hunters who use the dreaded crosshairs are the types that would probably enjoy hunting at a petting zoo.

SIDENOTE: The state of Montana has made it known that as of Thursday, February 13, any hunter caught in the possession of a hunting rifle with crosshairs will be fined $7,215.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
